Randy Farmer

Randy Farmer, age 66, of Mena, passed away Friday, December 29, 2017 in Mena, Arkansas.

He was born August 21, 1951 in Fayetteville, Arkansas to the late John David Farmer and Zola Tucker Farmer. Randy was retired from Log Homes where he worked for 26 years. He also drove a truck for PCDC for 4 years. He was a very talented wood craftsman and beautifully designed and made caskets locally for several years. Through his thoughtful nature, he gave away just as many as he sold. He also had a knack for fixing things, always wanting to help those in need.

Although Randy loved all of his grandchildren equally, he truly enjoyed his youngest who he called “his little man” and who will be lost without his Grandpaw. Randy Turner was his “side kick” and was considered more of a brother than a brother-in-law. He loved hunting with his hunting buddies Teil and Jack and fishing with his fishing buddie Harry. He was an animal lover and out of the goodness of his heart was always bringing them home. Randy was known for his kind ways and willingness to help and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Survivors are wife, Tommie Jo Farmer of the home; daughters, Maranda McKenie of Cabot, Arkansas, Tiffany Holland of Goldsboro, North Carolina; step-daughter, Debbie Secrest of Fort Worth, Texas; step-son, Edmond H. Powell of Mena, Arkansas; brothers, B. A. Farmer of Mannford, Oklahoma, Douglas Farmer of Mannsford, Oklahoma, Cloyed Farmer of Cleveland, Oklahoma; brother-in-law, Randy K. Turner of Mena, Arkansas.

He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters, Wilma Faye Nash and Rita Ann Turner, and brother, John Davis Farmer.

Graveside service was Tuesday, January 2, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Pinecrest Memorial Park under the direction of Beasley Wood Funeral Home of Mena.
